  1. There is not much to say really. What a magnificent charity the money raised to help the less privileged heart felt stuff.

    To the organizers to all the contributors,participants and supporters I take my hat off to you guys and may this continue and grow for many years to come.

    God bless you all.

  2. yet another great year for a well orchestrated, amazing event.
    everybody wins – charities, sponsors and the girls have a blast.
    yikes, they are competitive, 555.
    and Areca Lodge is a terrific host.
    this is THE event of the year when visiting LOS/Pattaya.

  3. Unfortunately I was not able to attend this years event. However I hope to make it in 2018.
    I hope the LBWVB charity goes on for a long time to come, and congratulations to Tony for all his efforts in making the event such a success., and the army of sponsors who,s contribution was considerable.

  4. First visit to LBWVB this year great fun and the awards after was great some stunning ladies .Hope to be there next year and help support a fantastic charity.

  5. Since its conception I have never missed this event, and it has never failed to be a highlight of the year, always entertaining, and always raising impressive funds for charitable causes while at the same time raising awareness of the good hearts common in the transgender society.

    I am always happy to sponsor a team for this unique social happening and to be able to contribute towards improving the lives of those in need, most especially the orphanages, and hopefully to do so for years to come.

  6. This was my second lbwvb event and it was even better than the first. It was very well organized like the previous one.

    It was better for me because this time, I knew some familiar faces from last year. It was great to see some of the friends I made last year.

    I felt I am part of something that is doing some very positive work within the community and having a lot of fun in the process.

    Well done. Can’t wait for next year.

  7. For many this is the highlight of their year.

    A chance to meet old friends and new, give to a very worthwhile cause and have a great week attending all the organised parties & events. It’s a pleasure to watch the girls enjoying themselves and participating in their annual communal challenge. Congratulations to all behind this memorable success.

  8. Hunny Bunny Bar was very delighted and lucky to be a part of this. We enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you, Bell, for inviting us. And thank you, Tony, for an amazing event and all upcoming events, too. Congratz to all the prize winners and especially Pink Panthers!

  9. Great fun event as usual. Lots of gorgeous ladyboys and handsome men having great fun. All for a great cause and provides positive exposure for the ladyboys. I always have a great time at this one. Thanks Tony and everyone!

  10. I have managed to be at this event on 4 occasions and have always enjoyed. This year as a partner in KRU I had the added interest of supporting our team. They did well with a 3rd place finish in the volleyball and 1st place in the dance competition, was a very entertaining day. Congratulations to the winners (Independent team) and runners up (Why Not) who had travelled down from BKK for the event. LBWVB always provides the opportunity to meet old friends and make new. Hats off to Tony for his efforts to organize this annual event and raise the funds for the various charities.

  11. Another great event this year. A splendid week of parties at the sponsoring bars that culminated with the event itself. I was delighted to be involved with the event and supporting the Golden Eagles. It was great to catch up with old friends and make new ones over the week. I appreciate all the hard work year round that goes into this event that is enjoyed by so many. Great to see the proceeds helping so many in need. Look forward to next years event.

  12. This is my fifth event and each time it gets better and better. It was great to meet old friends and new friends. Some incredible parties that ran up to the main event.

    But most of all it raised money for worthwhile charities and raised the profile of ladyboys Worlwide

    Well done to Tony and all the organisers that make this event possible each year.
